Earlier this week the Washington Nationals baseball game got off to a late start. The reason? The Umps were stuck in traffic. No really it's true.
I'm not 100% sure where they may have been coming from but if they had called me they would have known the best Northern Virginia commuting options to get to the stadium from home. My guess is they decided to drive into DC during rush hour instead of taking the Metro to the Navy Yard and making the 1 block walk to the stadium.
If they came into DC via the train they could have grabbed the circular route Metro Bus that leaves Union Station every ten minutes to the Navy Yard. However deciding to drive into DC during rush hour is always going to get you snarled in traffic and you need to plan well in advance to get to your destination.
Understanding how to get from Northern Virginia into DC for my clients is one of the main reasons I ask where you are going to work before we head out house hunting. Knowing your options so you aren't late for work or a Washington Nationals game should be one of the first questions you ask before you head out the door.
If you are looking to buy a home in Northern Virginia with multiple commuting options to DC give Cindy Jones and CJ Realty Group a call at 703-346-2213. We've been driving the local roads, using the metro, the commuter rail and slug lines for a long time.
